Converciti Podcasts bring you insights and observations from the sharpest minds around the planet on the most seminal issues of our times. This is where we challenge conventional wisdom, take a deep dive into politics, culture, and economics, and play gracefully with ideas.
In our latest episode we are joined by Shoma Chaudhury, an illustrious journalist, political commentator, and public speaker. In 2011, she was recognised by Newsweek as one of 150 power women who “shake the world”. Shoma has been co-founder and director of Algebra-The Arts and Ideas Club, co-founder and managing editor at Tehelka, and most recently, has produced a series of compelling discussions on her show, Enquiry.
Shoma speaks to Converciti about the main issues facing Indian journalism and the ways to resolve the contemporary crisis. From what is wrong with primetime debates produced by the likes of Arnab Goswami to the need for regulation in the media to how the future of Indian journalism could look like, this is everything you have ever wanted to know about India’s crumbling fourth estate.
